Ils n’auraient pas dû se rencontrer. Heureusement que le destin s’en est mêlé ! *** En pleine période de remise en question, Élise décide de tout quitter pour aller s’isoler au fin fond de l’Irlande afin de donner un nouveau souffle à sa vie. Elle s’installe dans un petit cottage perdu au milieu d’un paysage majestueux du comté de Galway : le rêve ! Seule ombre au tableau : un homme, certes très beau et charmeur, mais également arrogant comme pas deux, semble la suivre depuis l’aéroport. Et pour cause, il habite le majestueux manoir voisin qu’Élise admire tous les soirs de sa fenêtre. Elle l’ignorerait bien si seulement il ne se trouvait pas aussi souvent sur son chemin. De plus, Élise est beaucoup trop curieuse pour ne pas s’intéresser aux rumeurs qui courent dans la ville sur le manoir et son propriétaire. Bonne ou mauvaise idée que de vouloir percer à jour le mystère qui entoure Joshua Sullivan ? Ce qui est certain, c’est que cet homme ne la laisse pas du tout indifférente, et que même si Élise prend le parti de lui résister, Joshua semble décidé à jouer avec la petite Française… *** – Cette robe rouge me rend fou, Élise, soufflé-je, près de sa bouche. Tu me rends fou. Elle est si proche de moi que je sens les battements de son cœur qui s’accélèrent, sa respiration qui se hache alors qu’elle s’humecte les lèvres du bout de sa langue. Son regard fou se plante dans le mien et nos bouches ne sont plus qu’à quelques centimètres l’une de l’autre. Cette même bouche qui me provoque un désir et des pensées toutes plus perverses les unes que les autres. – Je crois n’avoir jamais eu autant envie d’un homme que ce soir, murmure-t-elle sans baisser les yeux. Maintenant, mon érection enfle encore et devient douloureuse tant elle est à l’étroit dans mon pantalon. Les mots d’Élise m’excitent et, pour la première fois de ma vie, je ne sais pas quoi faire. Partagé entre le désir profond et la raison. – Dis-moi ce que tu veux, Élise. Dis-moi ce que tu veux que je fasse. – Je te veux toi, Joshua, lance-t-elle soudain. Je veux te sentir en moi et tant pis pour tout le reste. C’est déjà bien trop tard de toute façon. *** Irish & Alpha, de Line Gagliano, premiers chapitres du roman.

Blanco’s Overview of Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency: History, Biology, Pathophysiology, Related Diseases, Diagnosis, and Treatment is a robust introduction to topics associated with Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency (AATD). Included are topics ranging from the history of the disease, biology, pathophysiology, related diseases, including the two major manifestations of the disease (liver disease and lung disease), and diagnosis and treatment. The book addresses the need for the amalgamation of current and novel concepts and practices in the field of AATD. AATD is under-recognized in the medical community and, as a result, it is underdiagnosed. The book provides increased awareness and understanding of the condition to improve diagnosis rates and enhance patient care. This book is an essential tool and reference, beneficial to clinicians who screen and treat AATD patients, as well as research scientists working in the AATD field at junior and senior levels. Presents the fundamental theoretical and practical aspects of Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency (AATD) based on scientific evidence Provides evidence to show that AATD is a rarely diagnosed condition, rather than a rare condition Contains current research and future perspectives from Dr. Ignacio Blanco, a worldwide expert in the field of alpha-1 antitrypsin and lung and liver disease associated with the deficiency of this antiprotease Provides resources to current registries and patient associations

In Ireland, recent social, cultural and political changes combined with globalisation, commercialisation and new technologies have re-shaped how we understand and think about sexuality. There is now a multiplicity of ways in which individuals can experience their sexuality, negotiate their sexual identities and advocate for sexual rights. Meanwhile, sexualities continue to be denied, problematised and subjected to regulation. The ongoing exchanges between real-life sexualities and the social contexts in which they are forged, provides the core focus of this book. Sexualities and Irish Society explores the construction and management of sexualities across a number of different sites, including the family, the legal and education systems, medical and therapeutic settings, and cultural and commercial arenas. Engaging with both theoretical and empirical material, the authors analyse the power relations within which sexualities are constructed, resisted and reconstructed. Written by academics, researchers, advocates and practitioners, this is the first comprehensive academic text on sexualities in Irish society. It showcases the best of recent scholarship from a range of disciplinary perspectives. Sexualities and Irish Society is a valuable resource for undergraduate and postgraduate students in social policy, social care, social work, sociology, women's studies, cultural studies, history, politics and studies of the body. It should also appeal to activists, campaigners and professional practitioners.

In her first-ever collection of essays, poet and novelist Lorna Goodison interweaves the personal and political to explore themes that have occupied her working life: her love of poetry and the arts, colonialism and its legacy, racism and social justice, authenticity, and the enduring power of friendship. Taking her title from one of Kingston’s oldest markets, a historic meeting place that was almost destroyed by fire, she introduces us to a vivid cast of characters and remembers moments of epiphany—in a cinema in Jamaica, at New York’s Bottom Line club, and as she searched for a black hairdresser in Paris and drank tea in London’s Marylebone High Street. Enlightening and entertaining, these essays explore not only daily challenges but also the compassion that enables us to rise above them. Goodison’s poet’s eye, profound vision and glorious combination of metaphysical and post-colonial sensibilities confirm her as a major figure in world literature.

STONEFIRE DRAGONS #9 Teagan O’Shea is a rare female dragon-shifter leader. While her Irish clan has a tradition of female leaders, they have had to hide behind a public male face for centuries to keep the other clans from viewing them as weaker and attacking. When the truth leaks, Teagan is faced with a choice—hand over the leadership to a male or invite the challengers to a leadership trial and earn her place. Out to prove having a penis isn’t required to be a leader, she picks the latter. Aaron Caruso is sent to Ireland under the guise of repairing relations between two clans on the isle of Ireland. However, upon arrival he learns the truth. Determined to secure Teagan’s place so he can escape her alluring eyes and addicting personality, he busies himself with helping her any way he can. A female used him once and he’s not about to go through that again, no matter how much the Irish female tempts him. As the pair work together on preparations for the leadership trial, both Aaron and Teagan start to see each other in a new light. Both have their own self-imposed loneliness and yearn for something they can’t have. Can Aaron and Teagan not only change tradition but also open their hearts? Or will they each be doomed to live alone to fight their inner battles?
